Terms of Sale for Publications and Home Study Courses

The courses available for Home Study or In-service, are owned and operated by me, Gay Lee Gulbrandson, for your information and education. Use of the course or download is subject to the following Terms and Conditions and all applicable laws. By purchasing or attending a course, you accept, without limitation or qualification, these Terms and Conditions. If you do not agree with any of the Terms and Conditions, do not purchase the course or download. I reserve the right, at my sole discretion, to modify, alter or update these Terms and Conditions at any time and you agree to be bound by such modifications, alterations or updates.

PURCHASES & PAYMENTS Gay Lee's CE Courses and Downloads and Publications
I accept payment by credit card or check. Please access the product/course descriptions page on the website, call the phone number, or email me. Materials and courses are available for download or shipped to buyer only after payment in full is received. NOTE: Additional Terms and Conditions may apply to online transactions, shipping and handling, lost or damaged shipments, CA sales tax, etc. (Please see shopping cart.)

Students may register in advance using the website Enrollment Form download, or in person at the door on a space available basis for the In-service Courses. Registrations are usually accepted until the actual beginning of a class. Students must be fully paid, attend the entire course, and participate fully in any practical sessions to receive a Certificate of Completion / Accomplishment and CE credit. For home study courses students must complete and pass the written examination (70% correct) to receive CE course credit, CE units and Certificate of Accomplishment or Certificate of Completion.

I actively seek to create learning environments that foster the success of my students. Barriers to learning are by design eliminated from my courses. One known barrier to learning is the operation of refund policies and guarantees. Both policies are often seen by students as exit strategies that may be exercised in lieu of completing a course. Thus, the possibility of a refund can and often does reduce student drive and level of effort to successfully complete a course. My basic refund policy is therefore - no refunds. However, there are exceptions. If a student enrolls in the wrong course, or an inappropriate course, and notifies me within 24 hours of enrollment, a replacement course or refund will be made available. Second, students are encouraged to continue with their studies until they succeed. Cancellation of an on-site classroom course student enrollment may occur up to 48 hours before the start of a seminar class. A $50.00 to $100.00 fee will be deducted for cancellation made prior to the 48 hour period for each individual. Within 48 hours of class start no refunds are made, and no course credit is given. A reason for non-attendance due to a natural disaster, student hospitalization, or similar major event preventing the student to travel may be considered. No make-up dates, adjustments, partial credits or refunds will be available.

Student exam answer sheets or other individual information will be sent back to the sending Fax number or email of origin. If you do NOT want exam results or other information sent back to the originating email or address or FAX number due to privacy concerns or otherwise, you MUST TELL ME IN ADVANCE. I am only too happy to use your requested method of communication. Unless you tell me in advance, results and Certificates of Completion or Certificates of Accomplishment will be sent electronically and you must print them yourself as desired.

Your personal record of courses completed with me is available to you upon your email request, and will be returned via email. Official sealed transcripts intended for third parties, will be charged an appropriate fee. Replacement Certificates of Completion if currently available, and sealed transcripts on paper cost $15.00 per page or each. Transcripts of courses completed via Dr. Vodder School International is available solely from that school. This CE site is NOT affiliated with the Dr. Vodder School International.
